Reviews
-- Alberto P?rez-G?mez, Saidye Rosner Bronfman Professor of the History of Architecture; Director, History and Theory of Architecture Graduate Program, McGill University
" The fascinating premise of this book is the belief in the possibility of founding a city in poetic acts, removing architecture from abstract geometry and centering it on the poetic word. I am very positive about this book and certainly recommend it. The questions it raises are extremely important for the practice of architecture, and particularly for the teaching of the discipline. The author describes the "Open City" and its theoretical premises with great love. The existence of the experimental city itself is rather unknown in North America. This is a work that deserves to be better known in the English speaking world, in the context of other important pedagogical experiments in architecture ranging from the Bauhaus and Ulm to Cooper Union." -- Alberto Pé rez-Gó mez, Saidye Rosner Bronfman Professor of the History of Architecture; Director, History and Theory of Architecture Graduate Program, McGill University
